In an effort to extract blog posts from a defunct older blog for a client, I set up a fresh install of WordPress 3.2.1 on a new subdomain on my own site – dev.anniesisk.com. So the login should be http://dev.anniesisk.com/wp-login.php.
I kept waiting for the new subdomain to propagate last night, but for some reason, it keeps resolving to the client’s login page. It’s still doing that today.
We both have the same hosting company but are on completely different servers and accounts.
I’m at a loss – I’ve cleared the cache, and I don’t understand why it would redirect like that, when I haven’t redirected anything. I have signed in and out of each HG Cpanel (his and mine), to make sure I’m not somehow contaminating this procedure.
EDITED TO ADD: I’ve confirmed in File Manager that the WP install is showing up in the dev folder for anniesisk.com.
Also, I tried loading the login page on a different browser – same result.
Edit #2: I found in the dev.anniesisk.com directory that I had both a wp-config-sample and wp-config file. Checked both – the config-sample had the sample code, the wp-config had the correct MySQL info. I downloaded both as backup and deleted the wp-config-sample file, cleared cache and tried again – same result, no change.
